I was wondering: i thought that when you get below the 10% pcr you must be in a MCyR. I was below 10% in various tests since my 6 months (different labs), but my marrow was at 40% PH+. Is this possible? is it possible a mistake in the cytogenetic test? I'm probably moving to tasigna 800 mg in the next few weeks. Thanks in advance!
pcr < 10% and not in MCyR. is it possible?

I would always trust the BMB cytogenetics more than the PCR, especially at higher levels.
10% PCR is only 1 log reduction. So the 40% BMB is about right. 1% PCR should be where the BMB goes to 0.

Thanks, trey. I always thought that if i were below 10% (i were 6% or 3%) i must be with less than 36% PH+. cheers!
